I had an awesome time making these Butterfinger cupcakes!  I used the same muffin recipe from an earlier post and modified it.  The cupcake has chocolate chips and peanut butter!  But the top of the cupcake rocks!  The frosting is a cream cheese buttercream.  And I mixed in Butterfinger pieces into the frosting.  Plus there is Butterfinger pieces to top the cupcake.  You will be licking your fingers like I have been doing because this is so good!  Here’s what you need along with Butterfingers.

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
